St. Patricks Day Parade 2015






Nenagh Neptune Swim Club will march in the St.Patrick’s Day parade in Nenagh this year. All members are invited to attend.

Please wear your club top with navy or black tracksuit/jeans – this will help with the overall look and presentation of the team as we march. In the event that you cannot wear your club top, please make sure that the top you wear is navy.

Assembly is at the CBS School on Summerhill at 13:45 – Please be there on time so we can organise the group for the march.

The Nenagh parades have been getting bigger and better ever since the event was revived in 2010. Since then, over 30,000 people have lined the streets of Nenagh to view the parades. Let’s get a great turnout on Tuesday 17th March and let everyone know who we are.
